    Uh oh, I missed your birthday again. Happy Birthday, and I can't wait to hear "Center of Six". I was fortunate enough to find a copy of the "Soon Enough" mini-album recently and was wondering if anyone has the complete lyrics to "What Good is Heaven"? That's a great song. Paul

    Happy birthday sweet Joshua! How beautiful that the Decendants had their first Sweat on your Birthday! Also, I haven't had pancakes in over a year I'm sure, yet I found myself ordering a huge stack of them this morning... the best I've had since your's...(which will never be beat!!!) I am so happy that a new album of your's has been released and that you are singing on! I am so happy that my song to you is on it too. I hope you hear it whenever someone plays it and that you remember I love you! I miss you. Love, Raina. ...P.S. Thank you for being at my wedding!

    Dear Josh, thanks for being with me this year-- making me mellow, making me strong, helping me laugh, helping me sing. Even Kaya covered me with kisses last week. She's a happy dog running the hills of Topanga, with a bark that echoes through the canyon! You set up good things for all of us. Love forever, your Mom.

    Hi there Marilyn- Thank you so much to you and everyone else involved in putting out Center of Six. What an incredible album. I'm sure there will be much interest in whatever other musical goodies you have stored up. The authenticness and creativity of Josh and his music never cease to amaze me. take care, Matt

    Dear Marilyn, I just listened to the samples of Center of Six at CD Baby, and once again am touched by the beauty and spirituality of Josh's music. Thank you so much for sharing his talent with the rest of us. On this Mother's Day, it might be the right time to honor your dedication and love as a Mother. I'm sure that you are a big part of what made Josh so special. I am a mother of a 15 year old (as of Friday actually) son and know the challenge of guiding a kid in a crazy world. You obviously did a great job. I would love any tips that you could pass on. Sincerely, Alisa (Jon's mother)

    Dear Stephanie, About "Heaven", I love that song! It was co-written and performed by Josh and Larry Goldings, and it was released as a B-side on promos of "Window" and "Soon Enough". Full title is "What Good is Heaven". We are planning to re-release it. We have just released the new album CENTER OF SIX, and if we find there's enough interest in such an album, next year we hope to release another, with unreleased Josh songs, Josh B-sides, friends' songs, etc. The theme for it is already planned, and "What Good is Heaven" will be on it! Thanks for your interest. Marilyn, Josh's Mom.

    Is there anyway to get ahold of Josh's song, Heaven? Are there any plans to release it on a forthcoming album? I would love to order a copy of it, but it isn't printed anywhere. I would appreciate any info I can get on this beautiful song.

    Dear Laura, Marilyn, and all the musicians on Center of Six – thank you so much for sharing more of Josh with us and for the wonderful tribute you have given him. Josh’s songs are once again amazing. If I picked a favorite, it would only diminish the rest. They are all fantastic! Raina’s song is so beautiful and emotional beyond words. The other songs are perfect tributes from all of you and give such a sense of Josh’s place in your lives. Thank you again for sharing yourselves with those of us whose only talent is to listen. The Benefit was a blast. You made Samantha and me feel so welcome and the music was amazing. Jeff – next year I’m going to get up the nerve to give you a hug cause you’re just so darn cute. Kevin, Jami, John, Randy and Carlos, Evan, and Chad – you guys rock! Donna is incredible. Chad (Lazlo) and Renee – I love your CD’s. Andras – I try never to be an a**hole, but the next time I am, I’ll make sure it’s for peace. We all get it. You are so right! To those we couldn’t stay to see, I hope we catch you next year. Please know that your efforts to put this together are appreciated! And finally to Wolf and Lisa – thank you for bringing your spirituality to this event. You honor us as humans with your work. I am happy to support that and look forward to the day my family can share a campfire with our relatives. I hope this event continues forever and that I can one day bring my grandchildren to blush at Andras, listen to Josh’s music, and hear your words. And thanks, Josh, for your constant inspiration. ~ Gwyn
